Daydreams


Published 1922


Buster Keaton asks the father of the woman he loves for her hand in marriage, but the father wants to see Keaton make something of himself first.
"I'll leave for the city to make good. If I'm not a success, I'll come back and shoot myself," Buster declares, which is a perfectly acceptable arrangement as far as the father is concerned.
So Keaton heads off for the big city and tries his hand at a number of different jobs.
But his letters to his girl suggest more noble and enterprising careers than those he's actually attempting.
Her imaginings provide the basis for the title, while his actual efforts provide the humor.

Reviewer: Johnny M. - - January 18, 2007
Subject: Another great Buster flick!
I love Buster and this is very funny. Buster with a fire hose is worth seeing. Sadly, this film is in rough shape. Frequent dropouts and large amounts of film damage are evident. I dropped a star because the film is in such rough shape, not because of Buster. My thanks to the Archive for posting this digital copy of the film before the original fall apart. Still worth a download.

Subject: the deeds one has to do
A really poor fellow. Buster suits this role really perfect. I could hardly imagine another artist that deals with his fate such great. The stoical way he gets things done is characteristic for his interpretation of the roles. Also the stunts are great.
